This day in history 166 years ago Karl Marx and Frederich Engels published the Communist Manifesto, probably the most influential political book of the modern era.

Its a short book, so if you have never read it, you should.

I agree, its a very good book, not necessarily for what it says but for the implications it has had around the world. Its one of the few books that permanently occupy a spot on my desk.

Fucking awesome! Narration could use some work..but I love the concept. Actually, I kind of want to narrate it.

One of the three books I own that shaped my philosophy.

The Art of War, The Communist Manifesto, and A Modest Proposal.
